Shingles Symptoms: Precautionary measurements

Hello visitor! Thank you for taking the time to read this article.

How an I inhibit shingles outbreaks?
Make sure to eat a healthful diet, get enough rest, exercise & find ways to get rid of stress. If you suffer from frequent or severe outbreaks, go and see your health care provider about the possibility of undertaking medical treatment to prevent or treat them as early as possible.

Can I prevent shingles transmission?
If you've shingles symptoms, you shouldn't have sexual intercourse until all lesions heal, the scabs have fallen off & the skin returns to normal. The use condoms when you suffer from sores or open wounds, does not prevent disease transfer as the condom can not cover all body's wounds. Moreover, the virus can spread even from the skin to places the condom doesn't protect. Having direct contact with sores can spread shingles to other parts of your body or to your partner's body. If the skin is back to normal & you don't have shingles symptoms, you can have sex again, but you can still spread the virus even when no symptoms are present (although the risk is low). It is suggested to always use a condom when having oral, vaginal or anal sex.

If you're experiencing, or begin to notice some of the familiar warning signs that may suggest an outburst - tingling, burning & itching sores where they were before - you should cease having sexual intercourse immediately. These signals may start some hours or days before a blister revival. People with ulcers shouldn't have any sexual contact until all sores have healed & all the scabs have fallen apart. Talk with your medical doctor to find out whether you need to take medication to reduce the possibility of transferring shingles to your partner.

The general rules to observe if you're struggling with shingles outbreaks are:
Do not touch the sores. If you do, wash your hands handsomely with soap and water to eliminate the virus.
After using the toilet, wash your hands
Do not touch or rub your eyes unless you've washed your hands.
Wash your hands before touching a contact lens.
Do not wet contact lenses with saliva.
If you suffer from cold sores, do not come to close to anyone, especially infants, children or pregnant women.
If you have genital sores, do not have sex, not even using a condom.

Some healthy tips:

When experiencing an outbreak it is important to keep the wounds & the area around them clean & dry as much as possible. This will help to quicken the natural healing process. Some doctors recommend warm showers on the infected area to keep it clean. After that, gently dry with a towel or a hair dryer on low heat or cold settings. In order to avoid scab, do not use tight-fitting underwear. Most creams & lotions don't help. Quite the opposite, some of them may even further irritate the area.

The amino acids lysine & arginine has been shown to play a role in shingles outbreak. According to some new research, lysine helps control shingles outbreaks. On the other hand, arginine worsens the outbreaks. Thus, foods rich in lysine & low in arginine content help control both herpes, genital & oral. The following is a list of food both rich in lysine and rich in arginine. Fish, chicken, beef, lamb, cheese, milk, beans, brewer's yeast, mung bean sprouts & most fruits & vegetables have more lysine than arginine, except for the peas. Gelatin, chocolate, carob, coconut, oats, white flour & bran, peanuts, bean sprouts & wheat germ have more arginine than lysine.

Can herpes cause cervical cancer?
No! Cervical Cancer isn't caused by shingles.

Is there any connexion between shingles & AIDS?
People, who suffer from shingles & other sexually transmitted diseases (STD) that cause genital lesions, are at greater risk of becoming infected by HIV . Injuries are a means by which HIV can enter the body & start to spread. If a person with HIV contracts genital herpes, it is quite probable that the infection will be more severe than it is for the person who's HIV free.
